Page Title:  HistoryThis section looks at the history of the Teachers Union and the factors that led to the Board of Education’s investigations of more than 1,100 New York public school teachers and college professors. More than 400 were ultimately fired, forced to resign, and otherwise driven out of their profession. The same Board of Education that investigated and interrogated them acknowledged that they were among the city’s finest teachers.
